The Orange County Business Journal recently unveiled their annual list of Best Places to Work in the region, and we were ecstatic to learn that we clinched the top spot in the medium company category!
This marks the fourth year in a row that Hughes Marino has made the coveted list, which we have made every year since we opened our doors in Orange County. We are so grateful to be recognized amongst so many outstanding companies across the region. We couldn’t have achieved this amazing accolade without the insight from our fantastic team in Orange County, who each participated in an anonymous survey provided by the Orange County Business Journal and Best Companies Group.
Of course, this team of amazing people would not be what it is today without the amazing guidance and forward-thinking leadership of Hughes Marino owners Jason and Shay Hughes. They have made our team members a top priority since the very beginning of the company’s history. They value the opinions and ideas of each and every team member, regardless of their years in the business or role in the company. Jason and Shay have made it a priority to provide us with beautiful homes away from our homes with each of our award-winning offices, as well as provide us with plenty of time off to have fun, weekly grocery deliveries and many meaningful opportunities to connect as a family. As I reflect on last year when I made the announcement of our 2016 awards, I didn’t think working at Hughes Marino could get any better than it was−but it has with each passing month! It is safe to say that every team member feels extremely lucky to have landed a spot on the team, myself included!
Another attribute that has set our company apart from the rest is the dedication we all have to our cherished ten Core Values. These values were created when our team was just 14 members, and they have become a guiding force in everything we do, from how we treat our clients, to the team members we hire and the way we celebrate our successes, big and small, inside and outside of the workplace.
A huge congratulations to all of the companies who were named as a Best Place to Work, and a big thank you to our amazing teammates in our Orange County office. Here’s to another year of success and fun!
